“I speak three languages: Tax, IT, and Finance. I march into uncharted territories. I am a Taxologist,” says Tom Weippert, tax technology manager at Ingersoll Rand.
Tom is a holistic, logical thinker and views his organization like a puzzle. He leverages his skill set to join different pieces together and better understand how each role impacts the corporate bottom line.
What drives Tom to think outside the box? In one word, the people. “I can truly remember the smiles on people’s faces when they discover they don’t have to do a [time-consuming] process anymore.” With his help, Tax has shaved significant time off of their processes. Projects that took two-to-three months to complete now only consume a couple hours of the day. Now his team can funnel that time into value-added activities instead of laboring unnecessarily over manual processes.
How has Tom overcome process inefficiencies and thrived? Watch this video and find out.
